Drives and motors for wastewater pumps

Pumping up your wastewater performance


ABB offers a range of efficient water solutions to control and optimize the pumping of wastewater. From energy-efficient motors to variable speed drives (VSD) that optimize pump operations and eliminate the risk of pump failure or leakages. If your system uses throttling to control the flow rate of wastewater, you can save a lot of energy by upgrading your pump control to a ABB variable speed drive instead.

ABB drives and motors are designed for harsh environments to withstand corrosive and wet conditions. The water dedicated drives speak the language of the pump operator making them easy to use. To ensure 24/7 flow of wastewater ABB offers local support and service, including ABB Ability™ Condition Monitoring for improving pump operations and preventing future pump failures. Our PLC’s connect seamlessly with ABB variable speed drives for efficient and accurate wastewater treatment operations.
